If you've never heard Maurice Ravel's jazz-infused and ebulliant Piano Concerto in G Major, you're in for a treat as French pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet performs it with the National Symphony Orchestra at Wolf Trap's Filene Center, Friday night July 18th at 8:15pm. Thibaudet speaks with Classical WETA's Deborah Lamberton about his love for this wonderful piece, and how he first performed it with orchestra when he was just eleven years old. Led by guest conductor Andrew Litton, the concert also includes Rossini's William Tell Overture and Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 4.
